Dear Sir:

I refer to your statement of May 18,2017 on the eigth anniversary of the end of the war in Sri Lanka.

I note that you extend your deepest sympathy and support to Canadians of Tamil descent. You seem to be ignorant that there are other Sri Lankans in Canada who also have votes, who are the real victims of the Tamil terrorist war in Sri Lanka which was funded by Tamil Canadians with the help of all political parties, particularly the Liberal party, whose members of Parliament including ministers, helped to fund terrorism in Sri Lanka for thirty years. Your sympathy and support to Canadians of Tamil descent is therefore indicative of your support for terrorist sympathizers. That was a contribution that Tamil Canadians made to Canada, making it a supporter of the most ruthless terrorist group. Tamil terrorists killed thousands with Canadian help. According to you it was a great contribution!

Please consider these FACTS rather than Tamil terrorist propaganda in Canada.

The war was by Tamil terrorists against the Government and people of Sri Lanka. The real victims were all Sri Lankans who you seem to have no consideration for in your support of Tamil terrorism just to get Tamil votes in Canada. Your support to Canadian Tamil supporters of terrorism is therefore abhorrent to anyone who does not support international terrorism and all Sri Lankans who were terrorized.

Sri Lanka does not need international investigators, prosecutors and judges. Would you call for international investigators, judges and prosecutors to investigate Canadian issues? How did the Canadian Government react to the death of one person killed by the FLQ?

The victims of Sri Lanka’s war were Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils. It is also a fact that the Tamil terrorists, the LTTE, killed Tamils indiscriminately to the end. They also killed Sinhalese and Muslims as they slept, prayed, in their places of work, trains, buses etc. using suicide bombers. The Tamils invented the suicide bomber vest and had special brigades of suicide bombers. They killed the Prime Minister of India, who incidentally was their one time friend and ally to get votes in Tamil Nadu, India, a President of Sri Lanka, ministers of the government and anyone who crossed their path regardless of ethnicity.

Your statement addressed to Tamil Canadians only, ignoring all others from Sri Lanka is also racist and discriminatory. Before you make these statements merely to get the “Canadian Tamil vote” in Canada, may I suggest that you get more balanced, accurate  information rather than Tamil terrorist propaganda and not antagonize non-Tamil Canadians from Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka does not need your continued discriminatory support to prolong the suffering caused by Canadian support of Tamil terrorism. May I remind you that it was a Tamil Terrorist War.

Yours truly,

    Thank you, Ms. Ira De Silva, for this letter. Please see below how Pierre Trudeau handled terrorism in Canada in the 1970s.

    Here are two excerpts from the article.
    “During the October, 1970 FLQ crisis, Trudeau didn’t wax philosophical about how terrorists feel “excluded” from society, as Justin Trudeau did when he was asked by the CBC’s Peter Mansbridge about how he would have responded as prime minister to the Boston Marathon bombings.

    To the contrary, when Canada was faced with a real terrorist threat in Quebec, including the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross and the kidnapping and eventual assassination of Quebec cabinet minister Pierre Laporte, Trudeau knew exactly what to do.

    He invoked the War Measures Act at the request of the government of Quebec, called in the army and empowered the police to conduct mass raids and arrests.

    Trudeau’s attitude towards the terrorists was crystal clear. He didn’t care what motivated them.

    As he put it at the time: “Nothing that either the Government of Canada or the Government of Quebec has done or failed to do, now or in the future, could possibly excuse any injury to either of these two innocent men. The guns pointed at their heads have FLQ fingers on the trigger. Should any injury result, there is no explanation that could condone the act. Should there be harm done to these men, the Government promises unceasing pursuit of those responsible.”

    Consider how closely Trudeau’s remarks then reflect Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s today, in his criticism of Justin Trudeau’s comments about terrorists acting as they do because they feel excluded from society.

    As Harper put it last week: “When you see this kind of action (the Boston bombings), when you see this kind of violent act, you do not sit around trying to rationalize it or make excuses for it, or figure out its root causes. You condemn it categorically and to the extent that you can deal with the perpetrators, you deal with them as harshly as possible and that is what this government would do if it ever was faced with such actions.”

    “Trudeau’s attitude to dealing with terrorists was best summed up in his famous exchange with CBC reporter Tim Ralfe on Oct. 13, 1970, where Ralfe pushed Trudeau on how far he was prepared to go to eliminate the FLQ threat.

    Trudeau: “Yes, well there are a lot of bleeding hearts around who just don’t like to see people with helmets and guns. All I can say is, go on and bleed, but it is more important to keep law and order in the society than to be worried about weak-kneed people who don’t like the looks of …”

    Ralfe: “At any cost? How far would you go with that? How far would you extend that?”

    Trudeau: “Well, just watch me.”

    To me, that’s a real leader responding to a terrorist crisis.

    Liberals, kindly take note.”
